Sonam Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania starrer Veere Di Wedding continues to do extra special field workplace trade. The movie has surpassed the bar of 50 crores on the field workplace. Producers Rhea Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor celebrated the movie’s good fortune via lately launching a play.
Sonam Kapoor said in an interview to a daily that she is on cloud nine with the film’s success. “I couldn’t have asked for more. I mean, the numbers have gone beyond all expectations. Right? And it’s very reassuring. The numbers it did at the box office gave me a lot of confidence and also made a difference to the way female-centric films are perceived by the film trade.” she said.
Comparisons with Alia Bhatt starrer “Raazi”, the other successful heroine-oriented film of the season, are inevitable but Sonam says her “Veere Di Wedding” has a long way to go.”I haven’t seen ‘Raazi’. But I am only hearing good things about it. It has already done a business of Rs. 100 crores. Our ‘Veere Di Wedding’ isn’t there yet. But I hope it would be,” she said.
She also refuses to discuss the controversies regarding Swara’s self-sex sequence in “Veere Di Wedding” or the trolls regarding her colourful language.
“Swara and I have been friends for five years. Working together in this film has only made us closer. Bebo’s family and my family have known each other for decades. I’ve grown up idolising her. Now, after Veere Di Wedding, she is a dear friend. I’ve grown fond of Shikha Talsania is too,” Sonam said.
